Garden Guidelines

Rules on the Grounds

  • A speed limit of 30KPH/20 MPH within the grounds must be observed to ensure the safety of visitors and workers.

  • Do not park on the grass.

  • No picnicking allowed.

  • No one under 16 years of age will be permitted in the cemetery unless accompanied by a responsible adult.

  • Leaf Collecting and/or Commercial Photography is permitted with written permission from the main office.

  • Glass jars and vases are not permitted.

  • Ritualistic, ceremonial burning of various items is only permitted in appropriate metal containers.

We ask all visitors to remember that, first and foremost, Windsor Grove and Windsor Memorial Gardens are cemeteries, not public parks. For many of our visitors, a visit to our grounds is symbolic of their remembering loved ones with love and affection. Everyone’s behaviour should be guided accordingly.

If planning a graveside event, please check with the office to avoid scheduling conflicts.


Floral Decorations

You are welcome to use a wide variety of floral decorations in Windsor Grove/Windsor Memorial Gardens if there is a flowerbed available.  A flowerbed of up to 18 inches is only permitted in front of a monument.

Cut natural flowers & potted plants may be placed at any time during the year. They will be removed by cemetery personnel within ten days for grass cutting or when they become unsightly, whichever comes first.

Appropriate Christmas decorations, either artificial or natural, are allowed from December 1st to April 15th.  Our maintenance department schedules flower removal.


On occasion, our resident wildlife may eat your flowers or inclement weather may topple wreaths or disturb arrangements. We cannot be held responsible for these or any other occurrences beyond our control.

Consult the By-Laws for more information.
